Description

The SWAT-T can and should be used as a pressure dressing – when haemorrhage is controlled is required or for venous and capillary oozing. Place a sterile dressing (or standard gauze / haemostatic dressing) then wrap the SWAT-T around the area of injury. You can then tuck or tape the end, which will maintain pressure on the wound (preventing further contamination and re-bleeding). If the endpoints are met on the dressing you may have a tourniquet and should check for good blood return in the extremity (pulse and capillary refill), or you risk the complications associated with all tourniquets.
